Israeli forces attack protesters against plans to turn Palestinian graveyard into biblical theme park

Palestinian protesters were attacked on Tuesday by Israeli forces as they demonstrated against the bulldozing of a cemetery in Jerusalem to make way for a theme park, according to local media.

Israeli forces attacked protesters who gathered and held prayers at Al-Yousufiyah Cemetery, where graves have been dug up and the site desecrated.

One of the protesters was detained by Israeli police.

Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Mohammad Hussein, said the planned theme park is an assault on the dead.

"The graves of human beings cannot be violated no matter the gender, nationality or religion," he said.
